MDE Activation Fails with Error Code ee850002

Hello, testing activation with McAfee Drive Encryption 7.2.8 and I keep getting Unspecified Activation Failure and the error code ee850002 is listed in the client event.  DEGO passed all policy requirements. I looked up the error code in the McAfee KB and it states that it is a error relating to NVRAM Write Failure.  Not exactly sure how to get this resolved but any feedback is appreciated.

Ended up being the BIOS setting.  Had to change it from Legacy to UEFI mode with Legacy Option ROM checked.
